Speech and Hearing Sciences undergraduate student Quynh Do was selected as a participant in the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association’s Minority Student Leadership Program (MSLP) Class of 2013. The program will be held the 2013 ASHA Convention in Chicago, IL, November 12-17.

As an MSLP participant, Quynh will participate in a set of leadership-focused educational programs and activities at the Convention.  Program goals include enhancement of leadership skills; helping participants gain an understanding of how the ASHA works; and providing the opportunity to interact with leaders in the professions of audiology, speech-language pathology, and speech, language, and hearing sciences.

Last year, Quynh was part of  the McNair Scholar program, working closely with mentor Dr. Amy Neel on her research project, and Quynh continues to work closely with Dr. Neel on research this year.  Quynh was selected out of 135 applicants for MSLP; only 40 students nationwide were chosen for the program.  Way to go, Quynh!
